In late 2009, she released her debut single 'Mama' that is being played in Kenya and East Africa in general and has been a huge hit for her. The song is a about a girl pleading with her parents to understand her and accept her choice of a boyfriend. It has resonated well with many people because it is an issue that the youth occasionally have to confront. She has also collaborated with a number of artistes including with Jaguar on the hit track ‘Tayari’, LAM from Sudan, with King George on ‘Number 1’ and lastly, with Tanzania’s AY on the track ‘Ahsante’.
The sky continues to be the limit for Avril as she has opened for the Morgan Heritage reggae show in April 2009, performed at the Mr & Miss UON (Carnivore), International Women’s Day, and Stardust in Malindi and at the Youth Convention at Bomas of Kenya among other places.
Avril is currently pursuing a degree in design at the University of Nairobi and counts her mother as one of her biggest fans. Be on the lookout for more hits from Avril and the Ogopa label.
